So I still haven't really caught up with bloggin'.  It might be a couple weeks to tell the truth.  Work is nuts, and we're getting ready for a big Alaska trip at the end of the week.  You can bet there's gonna be some updates then.   Stay tuned for big mountain pix!

Family Times

Just had a good long weekend, half in Minot, half in St. Paul with family.  Adam and Jamie (my brother and his wife) came up from Texas to Minot, then they and our parents swung down here to St. Paul to continue spending time together.  Good stuff.  It's been a while since the family's been together.  Adam played in the 1st Annual Integrity Jazz Festival in Minot as a guest artist, and I was once again amazed at how good he is for never practicing.  Nice work bro.  We also got to visit with our aunt and uncle Dave and Lynn from Minot, as well as Grandpa Jensen from Westhope.  Al and I need to break from the big West trips and come home a little more often.  Our family are good people, and they have rhubarb.  :)  St. Paul was enjoyed by all.  We ate a ton of awesome food, which is not hard to find here, and did a bit of shopping.  Good trip.  Come again.  We will too.

To Edward and Teresa!  They are now engaged!  (Actually they have been for a bit now, I just haven't had access to my blog.)  But still, congratulations!

I will catch up...

So I've had technical difficulties lately.  I haven't had a computer at home as our laptop has been having issues.  They've turned out to appear fatal, and we've bought a new computer.  We crossed over to the Mac side with a new MacBook.  This is the first night I've had it connected to the internet (still found at any of our local coffee shops- we don't have a connection at the apartment), so I'm writing this quick blog entry to let everyone know that my blog isn't dead as the last month and a half may indicate, but I simply haven't had access to it (my work blocks most websites.)  So I'm back, but a real entry will have to shortly follow this one.  Right now I'm going to finish setting things up on the new computer front.  To tell you what's to come, we're going to AK soon, as well as Mt. St. Helens, plus I'm now certified in the CRJ-200.  A lot has gone on to catch up on, so we'll do that soon.
